Why do people take selfies and post them on social media? Believe it or not, it’s NOT just because they’re vain. I mean, that’s one of the MAJOR reasons, of course, but it’s not the only one.
A new study out of Brigham Young University found there are three different reasons people take lots of selfies. Check ’em out . . .
- To communicate with their friends and family and engage with them. That could be like taking a selfie with your “I Voted” sticker to try to motivate other people to also vote.
- To record key events in your life and preserve memories.
- And to publicize yourself for vain or narcissistic reasons, like having people see how AMAZING your life is.
